For each patient, the dose should be titrated to the lowest known to be effective (see section on minimum effective doses); dose increases should then take place only after 2 weeks of assessment during which the patient is clearly showing poor or no response. With depot medication, plasma levels rise for 6–12 weeks after initiation, even without a change in dose. Dose increases during this time are therefore inappropriate. For the large majority of patients, the use of a single antipsychotic (with or without additional mood-stabiliser or sedatives) is recommended (see section on antipsychotic polypharmacy).
